The Wire | J.D. Wilkes on Paducah Life
J.T. Crawford at Paducah Life Magazine recently did a feature on the Kentucky Colonel himself, J.D. Wilkes, in lieu of his debut novel The Vine Ate The South. Wilkes is full of poetry during the interview, including this unforgettable line:
"It's like Moby Dick to me. My white whale are the woods of Western Kentucky. My seven seas are the trails that cut through the woods."
